Concrete Patching Scheduled on I-81 in Cumberland County

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that starting the night of Sunday, March 28, a contractor will implement lane restrictions to perform concrete patching on Interstate 81 in Cumberland County. This work will be performed on northbound I-81 between Mile 49 (Route 641) and Mile 52 (Route 11), and on southbound I-81 about a mile south of Exit 52 at Mile 51.

Work will be performed nightly from 7 PM to 6 AM Sunday, March 28, through Thursday, April 1.

The right (travel) lane will be closed at work locations within the project limits. 

This work is part of a $14,770,419 project that includes on and off ramp resurfacing, roadway base replacement, full-width milling and resurfacing, the installation of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) equipment such as a Dynamic Message Sign (DMS) and closed-circuit television video cameras, new guide rail, and cable median barrier in the middle portion of the project. 

New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc., of the Village of New Enterprise, Bedford County, is the contractor on this project.

Motorists are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones for their safety as well as for the safety of the road crews.
